Unexpected problem cambridge audio cxr200
I have recently bought a Cambridge Audio CXR200, it promised to be the perfect replacement for my old 751R V1 which was superb for music/movies in my 7.1 speaker set-up but had well documented HDMI issues ie. slow sync etc.
Sure enough the CXR200 sounds great & is easy to set up, has a built in streaming module & none of the HDMI issues that plagued the 751R & is the perfect partner for my CXUHD disc player, the ARC works well with my LG 65E6 oled TV.
BUT I have now discovered that it doesnt produce an O/P & displays NO SIGNAL when fed a DTS-X 7.1 bitstream from the CXUHD, the old 751R was able to downmix & produce a DTS-HD MA 7.1 o/p when fed DTS-X. Dolby Atmos produces a 7.1 o/p ok?
When I raised this with Cambridge Audio support first they said they hadnt seen this problem before & asked me to get the CXR200 checked by the seller.
When I checked with Richer Sounds a guy there had raised exactly this problem some time ago & was told by Cambridge support that the CXR200 doesnt support DTS-X or Dolby Atmos.
This of course we know & dont require but what we expect is that DTS-X & Atmos are both backward compatible & should produce an o/p of some sort.
Atmos does do this ok but DTS-X doesnt.
This has become more of a problem recently since Universal are making DTS-X the only soundtrack option on some 4K UHD Blu-rays.
Has anyone else had this problem with the CXR200 or CXR120??
